Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Back to a bit of perl
I am in an operational position that could use some automation. I have a windows 7 desktop without admin rights. Which perl environment should I install?
New Strawberry?

No personal experience. It looks like ActiveState and Strawberry were popular in 2012 on Win7.

Maybe this thread will help a little - http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=984829

This bit on perl and UAC might be useful too - http://www.vivtek.com/perl/perl_uac.html

It looks like some manual intervention is required if you don't have admin rights, but you should be good to go with Strawberry.


I haven't tried it myself, just hoping to save you some time.

Good luck!

New Thanks
New Execution restriction policies
Ours are locked down via GPO to not allow anything to run out of locations where user accounts have write access as a countermeasure to ransomware. Strawberry will not be able to run under those conditions.
New Not us
I was able to install and run chrome without problem.
New Now how about vim with no admin?
New Looks like it can be done.
